When I said, "I want my life to encompass the unexpected," I did not mean the tooth I broke on a piece of popcorn, necessitating a loooong dental procedure.
Or the leak by the chimney that sent water down the pipe to my rug in the middle of the night.
Or the ladder that fell from the roof to my head, raising a lump and making me a temporary redhead.
Although I am thankful that my head is hard.
Just so we're clear, I was thinking more along the lines of butterflies or rare birds or wisps of errant stories. Although really good chocolate would make up for a lot.
